The Great Gatsby Chapter 5

  1. 1. The Great Gatsby Chapter 5
  2. 2. The Lights Are On… <ul><li>When Nick returns home from his date in the city with Jordan Baker, Gatsby's house is ablaze with lights from tower to cellar, but there is no party and no sound. </li></ul><ul><li>As my taxi groaned away I saw Gatsby walking toward me across his lawn. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Your place looks like the World's Fair,” I said. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Gatsby is anxious <ul><li>Gatsby invites Nick for a swim… but there is clearly something else on his mind </li></ul><ul><li>Nick realizes that he is waiting to hear about Daisy </li></ul><ul><li>“ I'm going to call up Daisy to-morrow and invite her over here to tea.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. “ I carry on a little business on the side…” <ul><li>“ Well, this would interest you. It wouldn't take up much of your time and you might pick up a nice bit of money. It happens to be a rather confidential sort of thing.” </li></ul><ul><li>Because the offer was obviously and tactlessly for a service to be rendered, </li></ul><ul><li>I had no choice except to cut </li></ul><ul><li>him off there. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Nick Invites Daisy <ul><li>I called up Daisy from the office next morning, and invited her to come to tea. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Don't bring Tom,” I warned her. </li></ul><ul><li>“ What?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Don't bring Tom.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Who is 'Tom'?” she asked innocently. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Preparing for Daisy <ul><li>On the morning of Daisy's visit, scheduled for 4:00 p.m., it is pouring rain, but a gardener, sent by Gatsby, still comes and cuts Nick's grass. </li></ul><ul><li>At 2:00 p.m., a virtual greenhouse of flowers, complete with containers, arrives from Gatsby. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Gatsby Waits <ul><li>At 3:00 p.m., Gatsby, looking nervous and tired, arrives, dressed in a white flannel suit, silver shirt, and gold tie. </li></ul><ul><li>He tries unsuccessfully to calm his nerves by reading. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Daisy Arrives <ul><li>Under the dripping bare lilac-trees a large open car was coming up the drive. </li></ul><ul><li>It stopped. Daisy's face, tipped sideways beneath a three-cornered lavender hat, looked out at me with a bright ecstatic smile. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Where is Gatsby? <ul><li>When Daisy and Nick enter the house, Gatsby has disappeared. </li></ul><ul><li>She turned her head as there was a light dignified knocking at the front door. </li></ul><ul><li>I went out and opened it. Gatsby, pale as death, with his hands plunged like weights in his coat pockets, was standing in a puddle of water glaring tragically into my eyes. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Awkward Moments <ul><li>Nick leaves them alone for a little while. </li></ul><ul><li>Gatsby is reclining against the mantel in a “strained counterfeit of perfect ease or boredom...and his distraught eyes stared down at Daisy, who was sitting frightened but gracefully on the edge of a stiff chair.” </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Daisy says that she has not seen Gatsby for many years </li></ul><ul><li>Gatsby immediately adds that it has been five years next November, betraying his devotion to Daisy. </li></ul><ul><li>Fortunately, the awkward moment is broken with the Finnish housekeeper bringing in the tea. </li></ul>
  12. 12. “ This is a terrible mistake” <ul><li>Gatsby is nervous, and so is Daisy </li></ul><ul><li>Gatsby tries to leave, but Nick convinces him to stay </li></ul><ul><li>Nick leaves them alone again </li></ul><ul><li>When Nick rejoins the pair in the living room, Daisy is wiping her eyes, which are filled with tears </li></ul><ul><li>Gatsby, on the other hand, is glowing. </li></ul>
  13. 13. “ I want you and Daisy to come over to my house” <ul><li>Gatsby gives Nick and Daisy a tour of his home </li></ul><ul><li>dressing-rooms </li></ul><ul><li>poolrooms </li></ul><ul><li>bathrooms </li></ul>
  14. 14. Gatsby’s Bedroom <ul><li>His bedroom was the simplest room of all - except where the dresser was garnished with a toilet set of pure dull gold. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Wardrobe <ul><li>He took out a pile of shirts and began throwing them, one by one, before us </li></ul><ul><li>While we admired he brought more and the soft rich heap mounted higher </li></ul>
  16. 16. Daisy Reacts <ul><li>Suddenly, Daisy bent her head into the shirts and began to cry. </li></ul><ul><li>“ They're such beautiful shirts,” she sobbed, her voice muffled in the thick folds. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Outside <ul><li>After the house, we were to see the grounds </li></ul><ul><li>and the swimming-pool </li></ul><ul><li>and the hydroplane </li></ul><ul><li>and the mid-summer flowers </li></ul>
  18. 18. We'll have Klipspringer play the piano <ul><li>Klipspringer is known </li></ul><ul><li>as “the boarder” </li></ul><ul><li>because he is always </li></ul><ul><li>at Gatsby’s parties </li></ul><ul><li>and seems to live at </li></ul><ul><li>the mansion </li></ul>
  19. 19. Nick Leaves <ul><li>They had forgotten me, but Daisy glanced up and held out her hand </li></ul><ul><li>Gatsby didn't know me now at all. </li></ul><ul><li>I looked once more at them and they looked back at me, remotely, possessed by intense life </li></ul>
